Julie Béna works on environments that draw inspiration from the world of literature, film, theater and popular culture. Béna studied at the Villa Arson in Nice and attended the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. In 2012 and 2013 she was part of le Pavillon, the research laboratory of le Palais de Tokyo. Selected solo exhibitions include L’Eternelle Insatisfaite, Syntax, Lisbon (2016); Nail Tang, Galerie Joseph Tang; How to ask better questions? Artopia, Milan; Destiny, Galerie Edouard Manet, Gennevilliers (all 2015); T&T consortium, you’re already elsewhere, FIAF, New York (2014). She has realized performance projects at Kadist Foundation, San Francisco (2015), Fahrenheit, Los Angeles (2014), Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2014) and PERFORMA 13, New York (2013).
